The blog, Thank You Note Wording, has some great tips for funeral thank you notes, such as:

Dear __________,

The picture you sent us of __________________ is wonderful. It reminds us of so many good times we have all shared. Thank you for sharing a part of her.

With love,

_______________

Why not write some examples for your own client families and give them out with each box of thank you notes you distribute?

It only takes a few minutes put these together (get your staff to suggest their own versions or work with a local hospice or grief support group) and will benefit your client families for years.

One warning:  make a master copy or keep the handout in a computer file so you can print or copy fresh, crisp versions each time you need more.  Handing out a grainy, distorted photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy makes you look sloppy and unprofessional.
